Early Morning Stroll


Nikon D70 @ 70mm, 1/125 sec, f/16, ISO 200

I took this shot a couple of weeks before Christmas for someone's website. I had been trying to get shots of Arthur's seat for the previous few weekends but the weather had been so bad that I didn't even bother to leave my flat. On this occassion though, I decided that I would go regardless of the weather. And I'm glad I did - the weather was great!

The only trouble was that I had to get up really early, and this is never a good thing to do on your day off. We set off to walk up Arthur's Seat (a hill in Edinburgh) about 20 minutes before sunrise, so it was still really dark. The guy who I was taking photos for is a personal trainer so as you can imagine we weren't going at an easy pace either!

But the weather was ideal, I bagged my shots, and we both went home happy. Couldn't have asked for more.

Great shot. I've been up there before, but it wasn't nearly so nice when we were there. :-)

Great image! Some of the best photos I've ever had the fortune of taking were early in the morning before anyone else was out and about. I particularly like the composition with the silouette of the hiker on one side of the shot and the rising sun on the other.

The black silhouette meeting a colorfull depth in the sky is seemingly impossible to capture...thank you for showing it can be done.
